22.214.171.124 beta (Oct 8, 2011)
After the experience with version 1.7 (when several issues were reported shortly after the release), I've decided to release Kalkules 1.8 as the first public beta version, and to release the stable version after all the potential "baby" issues are fixed. Please note that the manual is not up to date yet, and also the translations of new text are not done (except for the English, Slovak, and Czech translation). All that should be done in the final release of version 1.8. If you find some issues, please take a minute to report them. Thanks.
